The trial of the two men accused of plotting to carry out a gun attack on the Jewish community in the north-west is set to begin next autumn.

Walid Saadaoui, 36, and Amar Hussein, 50, are accused of preparing acts of terrorism between 13 December 2023 and 9 May while Mr Saadaoui’s brother, Bilel, 35, is charged with failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism.

The charges against the two are that they “made arrangements for the purchase of delivery of firearms, conducted reconnaissance and made plans of attack”.

Mr Justice Baker said a 12-week trial would take place at Preston Crown Court from 7 October 2025.
